    Public transport accident in Lambeth


    If you’ve been in a public transport accident in Lambeth, you may suffer from a lack of mobility for a while. This could make getting back into exercise difficult after your injuries have healed. Read our tips for gradually boosting your fitness below, and read on for further information on making a claim for compensation for your injuries with Accident Advice Helpline at the bottom of the page.

    Tips for boosting your fitness after a period of recovery

    The following tips could help you to ease back into exercise without aggravating your injury or causing further damage to your muscles.

    Start off with moderate exercise

    Even the healthiest of people suffer a decline in fitness following a period without exercise. Don’t be alarmed if you’re not able to run 10k straight away or reach for the heaviest weights. Ease yourself back in by undertaking some light cardio such as walking and swimming, or using low resistance to help increase your strength bit by bit.

    Remember to stretch thoroughly before exercise

    Many people ignore stretching before exercise, and whilst this could damage your muscles anyway, it is worse for those who haven’t exercised in a while. A proper stretching session before and after exercise will help to prevent you from getting further injuries and make the exercises easier on your body. You may wish to take up yoga or pilates in order to get your flexibility back and aid your recovery.

    Eat the right foods

    Any athlete will tell you about the importance of the right diet to help you train, and eating one that is rich in protein and natural fats will be the most effective for your recovery. Eating plenty of protein before and after exercise will help your muscles to repair quicker and prevent the damage which could be caused to muscles which have just recovered from injury.

    Work with a trainer

    Personal trainers know all the effective ways of training someone who has an injury. By undertaking some personal training sessions you can learn about the most effective exercises to help with your recovery as well as have someone look out for you and help to prevent further damage. Even one or two sessions could put you on the right path to training correctly as you recover.

    Claim compensation following a public transport accident in Lambeth

    Your accident may have left you unable to exercise, but it’s likely to have had effects on other areas of your life too. For example, you may have suffered a loss of earnings due to not being able to work as a result of your injury, and for and many other reasons this compensation could help you.
